We had a dilemma the other night in our house. My mother-in-law loves my Sunday cookies, but her doctor has taken her off caffeine and a put her on a low sodium diet. I was whipping up a batch for everyone else and we decided we needed to come up with a new recipe, something she could enjoy. What resulted is a chocolate free, low sodium no bake cookie.

1/4 c. milk
1 c. sugar
